This quantity comprises ten lectures awarded within the sequence ULB Lectures in Nonlinear Optics on the Universite Libre de Bruxelles in the course of the interval October 28 to November four, 1991. a wide a part of the 1st six lectures is taken from fabric ready for a booklet of a little bit higher scope to be able to be published,by Springer lower than the identify Quantum Statistical tools in Quantum Optics. The primary explanation for the early booklet of the current quantity matters the cloth inside the final 4 lectures. the following i've got prepare, in a roughly systematic approach, a few principles in regards to the use of stochastic wavefunctions within the conception of open quantum optical platforms. those rules have been constructed with the aid of of my scholars, Murray Wolinsky and Liguang Tian, over a interval of roughly years. they're outfitted on a origin laid down in a paper written with Surendra Singh, Reeta Vyas, and Perry Rice on waiting-time distributions and wavefunction cave in in resonance fluorescence [Phys. Rev. A, 39, 1200 (1989)]. The ULB lecture notes comprise my first critical atte~pt to offer a whole account of the information and their power purposes. i'm thankful to Professor Paul Mandel who, via his invitation to provide the lectures, influenced me to arrange anything beneficial out of labor which may, in a different way, have waited significantly longer to be introduced jointly.
